Johansen: We weren't good enough

Stefan Johansen admitted "we weren't good enough" after Celtic bowed out of the Champions League for a second time this season.

Everybody's disappointed. We weren't good enough.

We had a chance today but we couldn't take it. We need to be better as a team.

We didn't manage to play the game we wanted to play. They (Maribor) are a good team and it was a good performance by them.
